Healthy, balanced lifestyle

Body & Mind

Responsible Party is about promoting a balanced lifestyle and empowering young adults to decide for themselves.

For many adults in many cultures, enjoying a beer, spirits, or wine is an important part of their social lives. Many lifestyle choices carry potential risks and benefits. While some people choose not to drink, health authorities in many countries have developed national drinking guidelines to provide guidance on moderate consumption.

We believe that for adults of legal drinking age, moderate alcohol consumption can be part of a well-balanced lifestyle.

So alcohol is a social enabler and in moderation it can be safely enjoyed as part of a balanced lifestyle that includes good eating and exercise.

However, drinking too much, either on one occasion or over time, presents some risks you need to be aware of.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to live in balance.

It’s all about amount and reason.

One thing is for sure: eating a healthy diet and being physically active have much greater health benefits than drinking even in a light way. Keep in mind that even moderate alcohol use isn’t risk-free. For example, even light drinkers (those who have no more than one drink a day) have a tiny, but real, increased risk of some cancers.

Also, drinking and driving is never a good idea.

Take care of yourself and keep your body and your mind healthy.

A Responsible Lifestyle is the best way to achieve success, happiness and keep authentic friendships with people you care about. For adults who do choose to drink, it is important to drink in moderation, avoid driving while intoxicated, and not drink during pregnancy. Those with specific questions about their own drinking are encouraged to consult their healthcare professionals. Together, they can determine what is best, based on individual risk factors, including family history, genetics, and lifestyle.

It is all about self empowerment: you decide. no one else.

Peer influence

Peer influence

Does the term peer
pressure ring a bell?

It can be defined as “the direct influence on people by their peers, or the effect on an individual who gets encouraged to follow others by changing their attitudes, values or behaviors. The aim is to conform to those of the influencing group or individual. This can result in either a positive or negative effect, or both.”

The social environment and the people around us influence our behavior. We all want to be accepted by our peers and face the challenges this acceptance calls for. The pressure your peers exert on you can significantly impact your behavior. In the case of drinking, this can put you in hazardous situations.

Did you know that…?

Drop Peer pressure is often one of the main reasons why people
drink too much alcohol:

  • Being involved “in a round”, being encouraged by others or not declining a drink just to be polite, are frequently cited reasons why people drink alcohol.*
  • A third (35%) of UK drinkers drink more than they intended because they were encouraged by others.*


Drop Social pressure is moreover the first drinking motivation, especially among young adults:**

  • 47% of 18 to 34 year-olds are also significantly more likely to drink more alcohol than initially expected because they want to “keep up” with others
  • One in five (22%) drinkers aged 18 to 34 have reported drinking
    more than expected because they were made fun of by others for not drinking enough.

How do you take advantage of peer influence and be a good friend?

Trust and empower yourself

Make sure your friends get home safely

Be a good friend, take care of your friends

Be non-judgemental, respect others and their choices
(if they choose to not drink)

Respect your own limits, we are all different

Drinking and driving is never a good idea, don’t leave someone drunk go home alone (even walking or riding a bike or scooter can be risky)

Lead by example with a peer-to-peer approach
